Court Lodge is a 2 bedroom detached bungalow situated in an idyllic location on the banks of Wootton Creek. The property enjoys Creek views and has gardens to the Creek edge, with slipway and access to the creek. With the correct planning permissions and subject to license, it might be possible to have a pontoon mooring.
The bungalow is situated towards the end of a quiet tree lined private road well away from the main road, but still offering easy access to the mainland car ferry connection at Fishbourne as well as the two main Island towns of Newport and Ryde.
Turning off the road to the private driveway, there's a large double garage and path to the bungalow.
The bungalow is in need of renovation throughout to bring it up to modern living standards, and would really benefit from an extension (subject to local planning).
Currently a front door opens to a large hallway with numerous storage cupboards, access to the loft and doors off to:
KITCHEN with window to front aspect, door to side, door to living/dining room as well as serving hatch.
Living/dining room: L- shaped double aspect room with feature solid fuel burner and sliding door to patio and garden beyond.

WOOTTON CREEK is one of the lovelier creeks in the Solent, with wooded valleys sweeping down to a winding creek. Midway between Cowes and Ryde, it was once used by trading sailing vessels visiting the brickworks at Ash Lake, and the tide mill at the head of the creek where the Sloop Inn now stands.
The village of Wootton Bridge offers a full range of facilities; Post Office, take-aways, tea room, launderette, doctor and vet, supermarket and wine warehouse; just outside the village is a garage.
Since 1993 Wootton Creek and the adjacent Ryde Sands have been designated as SSSIs due to their wide range of intertidal sand flats.
Just across the creek from Court Lodge is the Royal Victoria Yacht Club, a thriving 'open to all' club founded in 1845 by Prince Albert to give to Queen Victoria, and now provides a fantastic range of activities for all members.
